One of the most popular modern silver collectible coins are the beautiful Burnished Silver American Eagles, which features a visually appealing smooth matte-like finish, highlighting its popular classic-contemporary design.

Birth of Burnished Eagles

First introduced in 2006 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle series, with a new Burnished finish to add a collectible factor to the world’s most popular bullion coin. These coins were struck from 2006-2008 and again from 2011-present, with two-year production hiatus from 2009-2010. The new finish is referred by the United States Mint as a collectors “uncirculated” finish, but these collector coins are commonly referred to as Burnished Eagles, which are also available in the Gold Eagle series.

Classic-Contemporary Design

The obverse features the classic Adolph A. Weinman depiction of a full-length Lady Liberty walking as she shares strength and prosperity as she is wrapped in the U.S. flag. The contemporary reverse depicts a bold American Eagle design beneath an inverted triangle of thirteen stars, designed by John Mercanti, a former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver and prolific numismatic designer. All burnished coins carry the desirable “W” mintmark for the West Point Mint on the reverse, which strikes Burnished American Silver Eagles.

This coin has been authenticated and graded in NGC perfect MS70 condition with a special collectors Early Release (ER) label, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of the series’ 2020 issue. Encapsulated in a stunning royal blue core for a striking contrast, makes this coin come alive.
